Peasant Museum (Muzeul Taranului Roman) reviews
The main museum is closed for upgrade and there is a small temporary one that is not worth visiting. Look at their website for details. I tried to say how to find it but trip advisor won't let me. more »
The most beautiful museum in Bucharest. If you visit this town, you should spend here at least a couple of hours more »
The Gift Shop of this Museum is one of the best I've ever seen! They have really old Romanian blauses with some minor defects at some incredible prices. They also organize quite frequently fair with homemade products. Definitely recommend!
Unfortunately, this museum is closed for renovations. If you are in doubt, ask one of the tourist information centers before going. Other notes: - The entrance is in the rear (back side) of the building, NOT on the front side facing the street - There is a really nice local market with crafts in the field behind the museum (on the rear side by the entrance). - There is a cafe on the back side - There is an old building worth viewing on the back side. Again, the main peasant museum is closed with no date set for re-opening.
